[Special to The State.]
Watlterboro, June 14.-Sooing the
editorial in this wook's issue of the
Press and Standard calling upon
Capt. 1). C. Heyward, of this
town, to bacone a candidate for
governor at the next primary, your
correspondent callod upon him to
day and asked him whether ho con
templated making the race. Capt.
Heyward replied that he felt exceed
ingly gratified that so many of his
friends in his own county and through
out the State had oxprossed to him
their desire that lie should enter the
contest for gubernatorial honors, and
that he had decided to do so.
Capt. Heyward was then asked if
he would outline to some extent his
views upon the political issues which
would most probably enter into the
next campaign for State offices.
He replied that at this time he
knew of no question upon which
public attention would center chiefly
during the next campaign; that in
his opinion the people of the State
were closer together than they had
been for yoars. Old wounds had
healed and the day had come when
the people of South Carolina were
doihg their own thinking, and were
realizing the fact more fully than
they had over done before that those
questions which tended to inflame
the passions of the people, and there
by retard all industrial development,
should be relegated to the rear, and
in their stead should be brought to
the front such subjects, the discus
sion of which in calm dignified, and
intelligent manner, would "result, in
the material welfare and prosperity
of all the people of the State.
When asked to be a little more
specific as to the nature of those
questions, Capt. Heyward replied
that the educational system of the
State was far from complete. That
there was no subject of gr%ater mo
ment to the people of this State than
the education of her yo-uth, and that
we ought to exert all our energy to
the building up and perfecting of
such an educational system as would
furnish our boys and girls with an
opportunity to fit themselves for the
duties and responsibilities of life.
Continuing, he said that the sub
ject of immigration was one which
should be given attention by those
who have the best interests of the
State at heart. That immigration
should be officially and systemati
cally encouraged. In this connee
tion he instanced south-western Lou
isiana and southern Texas now the
most prosperous agricultural portions
of the South, built up to very great
extent by an influx of western farm
ers, induced to leave their mortgaged
farms in search of cheap and pro
ductive lands and a more congenial
climate. What has been done in
Louisiana and Texas, lie claimed
could be done in South Carolina if
the effort was made. Good roads,
which wore doing so much for North
Carolina, and the drainage of our
swamps and abandoned land, consti
tuting as they do more than one-fifth
of the acreage of the State, should
be vigorously looked after. Capital
should be encouraged to come into
the State and should be made to feel
that it was welcome and would be
safeg'uarded by every protection
which the law threw around it.
* "How about the dispensary!" lie
"That I consider," he replied, "a
settled question and one which should
not' figure in the comin'g campaign to
* the exclusion of other important sub
jects. It has been passed upon again
and again by the people of-the State,
and is a question which every voter
should thoroughly understand.
Should it be my fortune to be elected
governor of South Carolina 1 would
seek to enforce the dispensary law as
-I would every other law which I
found upon the statute books. The
office of governor is an executive one.
t mIe 1ULy o tino governor to see
that the laws are enforced, ald not
to direct what laws the peoplo shall
make through the legislative depart
mnt of the government. Of course,
I am mindful of the fact that the
constitution imposes upon the gover
nor the duty of suggesting to the
law-making department of the gov
ertnent, from time to timo, for its
consideration such measures its he
may (eem necessary or expedient,
and ;his duty I would bo prepared
to carry out to the best of my capac
ity. If elected to the high office to
which I aspire, I will sook to be the
governor of the whole people of
South Carolina, and my only aim
will be to sorvo them to the best of
my ability and understanding."
COLLETON COUNTY NOMINATES A SON OF
WHOM 5BR.E 1s PROUD.
There- is a mfrong disposition on
the part of many of our people to
present to the Democratic voters of
the State at the next primary the
name of one of our honored citizens,
Capt, D. C. Heyward, as a candidate
for governor. It is not known posi
tively whether or not Capt. Heyward
would consent to make the race, but
if ho does, he will enter the contest
as well equipped and under as favor
able conditions as any man who
would aspire to that exalted office.
He will find the people of his county
enthusiastic and aggressive in his
support, besides having in almost
every county of the State :rionds who
will vote for him, talk for him and
work for him.
Capt. Heyward is a man of most
pleasing and attractive manners,
with a well trained and practical
mind, and of exalted character. He
is a native South Carolinian and is
thoroughly identified with the peo
ple of the State in all their relations
of life, social, financial and political.
He is in no sense a politician, never
having been a candidate for any
office. Yet he has always taken an
active interest in all public questions
affecting iLe welfare of the people
and has devoted much time to the
study of governmental and political
questions. As a public ';l,eaker, he
is earnest, forceful and aggressive
and would make a'deep and lasting
impression upon our people should
he enter the contest and canvass the
Such, briefly is the man whom we
suggest as the next governor of South
Carolina. We have said nothing of
him which the most critical examina
tion will not justify. As governor,
he woild give the people of the
State a broad and progressive admin
istration, promoting the interests and
welfare of the people in every depart
ment of life, and we trust that he will
consent to make the race, and we call
upon him to do so.

..J. S. Fowler went to trial this
afternoon and a motion was mado by
his attorneys to quash the indictment.
After argument, Judge Kiugh quash

Testimony was taken and the case
argued before the jury and court ad
journed until tomorrow.
The reasons assigned for accept
ing the plea of assault and battery
in full of the indictment is stated by
the solicitor to be that he did not
think the State could prove its case
as in the other counts. Hammond
was indicted in four cases but was
fined in only one, which settles the
matter in full as to him.
Harriet and Will Owings were

atorial opinions on a personal contro
versy between the two men who are
members of the Upper House , and
who have warm friends on both sides
of the chamber, is of course, difficult
to get. There are few Senators in
Washington now, and these few read
of the resignation of the South Caro
linians with a surprise a fe,v days
ago. They expressed the opinion
today that they felt that both Sona
tors had made a great mistake in fal
ling into a controversy which would
involve both so deeply. Both Till
man' and McLaurin are blamed by
Senators who are their friends, while
nearly all the members of the Upper
House are too experienced in politics
not to understand what a man will
do in the heat of such a struggle as
now is in progress in South Carolina.
Still in their temperate moments, and,
as they were today, at their own fire
sides, they look upon the latest phase
of the Senatorial tight in that State
as bcing almost childish in its ex
Senator Morgan, of Alabama, said:
"Both men are good Democrats. I
have no reason to doubt either man,
and I consider Senator McLanrin
one of the ablest men in the Senate.
He is young, he is modest, but he is
very alAle. I cannot think of one in
stance where McLiaurin has had his
Democracy challenged. One may
vote for or against subsidies-But
all Democrats in the Senate vote for
a subsidy at one time or another
and still be a true Deinocrat, I consid
er the man progressive who faces each
and every public question as it comes
-up and tries to solve it for himself.
Yet, we have stereotyped Democrats.
This is an opportunity to honor the
man who, disagreeing with both the
platform and the nominee of his
party, does not step over into the
ranks of the other party, but prefers
to let the issue pass--takes to seclu
sion and waits, but does not desert
his party. I think there are many
such Democrats in this country today,
and we shall not misjudge them.
Therefore no one can say that this
man is not a good Democrat or that
man is not because he may vote for
or against some bill in the UniteC
States Senato or in the Lower House
which may appear to involve directly
